Another in this fine series of books on probably the most well supported club in football.Written with a warm and wry humour following the ups and downs of being a real football supporter and not like many a TV follower of one of the so called big clubs. Well done once again Mr Howarth.
Excellent record of seasons activities on the pitch and the authors other activities. Knowing there is a happy ending allows a relaxed attitude to the at times brutal proceedings. Very fair and honest assessment of BFC trials and tribulations
The reassuring thump of another tome from the Bard of Burnley falling onto the hallway floor is something to cherish. The erstwhile textile gossip has added to his series of books surrounding the latter good fortune of his sporting love, Burnley FC. The story follows Peter's season long roller coaster of nail biting and desperation to the point of hiding away from radio commentary by doing domestic chores - in the hope that by being a dutiful husband Burnley won't concede a vital goal! A man truly in love with the famous old club, the book is written in an appealing style, woven with tales of home, walking routes, pubs and pints to try and of course his excellent recount and appraisal of the Clarets performances. The good news is that Burnley stayed up and his fingernails grew back during the summer...
Peters book is a fun read - particularly for claret supporters. Like most football based books it makes insightful comments about the feelings of being a supporter of your team. Plus there are suggestions for good pubs in the area.
